STICKS TO IT.
Dr. Miller has made the assertion
that the Union Army was a tyrannical
concern, and would not allow men to
be ''Democrats," and no;v proposes to
substantiate his assertion if possible.
Well. Dr., we don't know, really,
whether, you are to Llarne or not fcr
not liking tho "Loys in blue." They
were hard on some of your "friends"
down South. But then you ihoulJ not
let your dislike carry you so far. -We
belive the boys had a perfect right ti
vote, and we do not think that vote
could have been '-bought for a jug; cf
whiskey." No; the trouble with you
is not that they could not have "inde
pendent political opinions,"- Lut that
they could and did have them, as is
evidenced by thousands who forsook
the ranks of Democracy when they saw
that party hissing them and siuLbingnever l,ee() a failure in crops from the.
them in the I at k while the armed trait
ors were firing at ihem in front. That
is the reason yjur party get r.o votes j
among the armies of the Union. And
now these ' b.iys in blue" see men in
Nebraska, with whom ihey were en
gaged in deadly omlai for the life of
the nation only a few days ago, march
up t the polls to 'vote down the blue
coatdd, brass-buttoned abolitionists."
Is it any wonder, under these circum
stances, that every soldier who l.as
stood the ' heat and burthen" of th
war for the Uni ni should deposit a
la'lot against such men, and that these
men and their leaders, should cry
"fraud upon the people of Nebraska."
.Vi ost ri;iKT."
Under the above heading Morton
calls upon his friends to have the Rock
Binds vote counted anyway, whether
it is legal or n t ; and nrjes men. to
fight if it should not lie counted. Hold,
M-.rtcn ; you and othjrs of your stripe
talked the same way onco before.
Have you forgotten the past five years ?
We suppose it is desired ly such men
to either have a fight or have the
fraudulent vote, at Falls City counted ;
also, to have a fight if the soldiers vote
is counted, which they denounce as "a
swindle a fraud upon the people of
Nebraska,' and which they say could
'be bought for a jog of whiskey."
Who do you propose to right ? Is it the
first Nebraska that you seek an en
counter with ? They have had many
a "tilt" with seme of your Nebraska
Cry backers, and lo the beat of our

ropean powers, bet it is generally con
ceded thai war is unavoidable. This
u!l not seem strange to any one who
redacts that there is a universal wish
in Curope to reconstruct the map, as i'.
is called. That can be done cn'.y by
peaceful negotiation or by war. But
what chance is there r.inong the con
flicting claim?, and hot pasions and
ambitions of the various powers, that
a hinnonious redistribution could be
male? The wisest heads, are clearly
of opinion that it is hopeless, and that
it may not be possible even to hold the
dogs of war in leash until the Con
Meanwhile the number of troops
upon a war fooling is already enormous.
The Northern army of Austria alone,
under General lienedek, upon the front
iers cf Trussia and Saxony, is com
posed of 3S0 000 men and 500 guns
The Austrian force in Venetia id 130,
000 men, while the Austrian reserves
comprise 600,000. Vienna is being
strongly fortified. The Italian army
will contain more than oOO.OOO men,
of whom 2-50,000 are already in the
first line, and are inspired with the ut
most enthusiasm. The Prussian force
is immense, and Europe is already a
camp once more.
There are two elements which have
not been much considered, but which
I may prove to be of great importance.
These are Russia and the Repulicans.
The people of Europe at this time
would hardly allow the struggle to be
merely a dynastic combat. They would
sieze the moment cf universal tumult
to claim further rights; and when once
a war begins of the necessary propor
tions of this, it is impossible to foreteil
the end or the result?. A great deal
more than was mean! will te loth won
i and lost.
The editorial correr-pn.-'lnce of the
Kansas SI uie Journal, dated Nebraska
City, June. G'.h. contains the following:
Nebraska ha a population of at out
-1.1000. Its population in lSoO was
20,000, showing a steady and very
gratifying increase. 'I he inhabitants
are industrious, order!' and entt-rpris-ino:,
composed almost txc'u?ivey of the
agricultural classes. The reports in
Agricultural Department al WasLing
ton shows that tlie farmers' of Nebrus
ka for 1SG5, raised larger crops to the
acre, and received a higher price per
bu?hel for their produce than an aver
age of three-founhs cf the States in
the Un on. As a grain producing re
gion it is unsurpassed. Jioth fall and
spring wheat is grown hi re wiih suc
cess. Corn especially in the rich val
leys of -LTenuquicourt. the Platte, the
Weeping Water, the Nemaha, the Blue
and Salt Creeks, yields abundantly,
and is always a sure tron. Inere r.as
first settlements in 18-31 to the present
lime. A successful experience ot
twelve years has fully demonstrated
the capacities of this Terri'ury for grawi
growing. Tiiere is abundance of pas-
! turage for sti ck, and upon tlie rich and
excellent prairie grasses stock thrive
finely, and the growing of wool, and
the raising of carle could but be. a very
remunerative business were it not for
the coniderably greater lima required
to feed in thu course of the year than
is rerpiired in more southern latitudes.
I he eve re winters, tlie piercing winds
the broader valleys and greater amount '
of limber in latituaes furiher south,
will ntver allow Nebraska to success
fully compete with southern Kansas in
growing wool ai d raising stock. The
eastern purtion of the Territory, for a
distance of 1-30 miles back from the
river, is capable ef supporting (juite a
dense population. This Comprises all

probably nver be made available to
any considerable extent for the ship

be a western demand for all surplus

say s :
"A sycamore tree was cut down, a
few days ago, on Forty point, Ya. ;
and in mauling it up, a lock of hair
was discovered in tint centre of the
tree, about four feet from the ground.
The l air a; pcared to be a curl from a
female head, and must have been put
in r.s position ome fifty or sixty years
ago. A hole had been gouged to the
heart of the tree, the hair put in, and
the hole plugged up. The place had
afterwards grown over, and the cavity
was found te be in the heart ot the
tree. The hair nppeared to be as fresh
as if lately cut from the human head."
The above circumstance brings to
mind an old scperstitious practice, onc
very common in some parts of our
country. For ihe cure of Phthisic,
Fpileptic Fits, and some other com
plaints, ihe following treatment was
deemed soverc ign : The person h.TIici
ed was made lo stand erect, with the
k against a tree.
k ot hair
on the Ion of the head was lifted up its
full length, and an aug'iir hole
into th? tree nt a proper height to re
ceive the end of ihe lock so elevated
The hair was inserted in the hole, a
wooden plug driven n, and the hair
dipped oil otr.tide. Tins being done,
u was firmly believed that the patient
would remain free from lhf complaint
until he or she grew to the height of
bole in which the hair was fastened.
It will te seen, that persons who had
already attained their growth, or who
had very long hair, had a much surer
thing of it than short-haired persons,
or those who had yet to do the better
par. of their growing. We can re
member of several persons who prac
ticed this mpihod of cure, in our young
er days. Doubtless, if the history of ;

pleased with their succes and argiud
the point so well that I was convinced
that wire must fence Nebraska.
Bui one instance of breach of wires
had occurred : a horse pelting freight

and then injuriously surrender d to
prevent the unnecessary ttiusion of

by repeated collisions w ith the wires.
The wire should be telegraph size,

P:it;ing up the fence is but a small
matier in consequence of the small
n.. ruber of post. If passed through
holes th wir?s rust, thi is prevented
by attaching to the sides by m-ims of
staples made of lin wire and diiven
into th 1
po ts. The wires need not be

field. They are drawn tight by pulley
or lever power.
At present rates of labor and trans
portation, wire is much cheaper than
any other durable fence.
